Well, not as interesting as a sex hack, I suppose, but...
My fiance gets really upset with me if I work late and forget to text her. I often forget, and she won't make the first move to text me. It was getting to be a huge deal.
Then I discovered Llama for my Android phone. I setup a script that fires if the time is after 6:40 (I usually leave work by 6:15), if I am still connected to the cell tower at work, and if I can still see the wifi network. This script sends a text that says, 'I'm going to be working late tonight', and dings to let me know it sent. It's been working fantastic.
I just recently added a new one that fires if the time is after 5:00pm, and I have just left the work cell tower area, that sends a 'I am on my way home' message. She has been super pleased at how consistent I have been about letting her know what is going on, and the best part is that I don't even have to remember to do anything. Thanks technology!
Just an edit to add, I also added a variable to make sure the actions can only fire once per day, with an action that happens around 3am to reset that variable, so if I leave work and go back it won't go off twice.
Thanks for all the comments, I'm glad you guys enjoyed it.

I honestly don't usually even have two weather weather widgets. I had put an extra on the home screen only because I was picking up my brother from UC Berkeley just a day ago. Just plain luck since they were prepared for the exact "task" in advance.
WhoIsIt - set certain contacts to always ring at full volume, even if your phone is on silent ( I have the alarm monitoring company for my work set to this so I never miss a call in case of a break in). Also set seperate ringtones and vibration patterns for each contact; with seperate ringtones for sms, mms, phone and gmail per contact.
Harass Me - default settings make it so if you receive 3 calls from the same number within 3 minutes your ringer will turn on if your phone is on silent. My family and immediate friends know to call 3 times in case of emergency in the middle of the night
edit: more details for what WhoIsIT can do, and links.
SwiftKey X, Reddit News, Dropbox, ES File Explorer, AirDroid, Pulse News (if you like all your news in one place) and if you're going to root*, Clockwork Mod, LBE Privacy Guard, ~~AdFree~~ AdAway and JuiceDefender. So jealous - congrats!
EDIT: As far as image uploading apps go, imgur for Android is pretty solid.
Anyone interested in starting a fork from the last stable GPL build? I've got a bit of Android dev experience. Perhaps other interested coders might want to band together!
EDIT: I'm going for it. I forked the github project, I'm going to do some testing, replace the icon (to avoid confusion) and get it back up in the Market for interested parties. Updates as they occur.
EDIT 2: here's the github fork: https://github.com/zagaberoo/diode
EDIT 3: It's up! Come and get it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=in.shick.diode Tomorrow I'll make a post announcing it to anyone else interested in staying open source. Then I'm going to add some GPL compliance stuffs like an about page that states the license.
Screen Filter. Great for AMOLED screens that are too bright in pitch black even at the phones lowest brightness settings. Possibly saves battery? (but don't you buggers quote me on that!)
edit: A lot of love for this app! Let the dev know how you feel!
He's simply asking you to rate it and providing an incentive. He's not forcing people to rate it, and he's not telling you to rate it 5 stars (although you could say he vaguely is implying that).
I really don't see what isn't OK about this.
It's clearly effective, look at some of the other top fishing games:
iFishing Lite 1-5 million downloads, but only 5500 ratings
Big sport fishing 3d 1-5 million downloads, 10500 ratings
Gone fishing has 100-500k downloads but 17000 ratings.
If your screen is too bright at night, use screen filter to dim it even further. Also if supported it can disable the button lights. Perfect for night reading
I receive barometer readings from phones every 2-3 seconds. About 1,500 people are constantly submitting their measurements through pressureNET. It doesn't take much power from the powerful phone angle, but then again, only powerful phones include barometers!
Edit: I'm also coding a new app to automatically insert monsters into pictures you take. Here's a beta screenshot. If reddit really likes this one, we'll be ready for a beta release to Google Play in the next day or two! :)
Edit 2: I also started work on an powerful "augmented reality" app that points out airplanes in the sky as you move your phone around. It's basically like Google Sky Map but for airplanes instead of the cosmos. Here's a screenshot, though it's on hold indefinitely (Wolfram Alpha is my data source, and refused to give me a commercial developer account. So the project is dead until I find a new data source).
I blocked that right away with LBE privacy guard.
Edit: also wanted to add that I did add a negative review and email to devs. And, I should have include a link earlier, so here: LBE Privacy Guard
Developer Notes: My twin brother started Read It Later back in 2007 and has been expanding it ever since. Near the end of 2010 I decided to join in and started building an Android client which was released the following year. Over the last year our modest little team has grown to eight people. In April of 2012 we rebranded to Pocket. Outside of Pocket I also have a game that I am working little by little on.
Galaxy Note users who get the ICS upgrade: You can now join the pressureNET project as you have a barometer and ICS! We receive about 700 measurements per hour from around the globe, and are hoping to grow this as much and as fast as we can in order to make real attempts at providing better short-term local weather prediction. The project is open source (see cumulonimbus.ca for code and discussion.)
(I've been popping in to all of the Note threads recently, and if I'm starting to bore you let me know, I'll pipe down)
This might win the award for the most OCD post in the android subreddit for the day. In any case, as long as you are rooted, Clocksync will make you quite happy.
Parcels Just put in the carrier and the tracking number for a package and it gives you updates about it's location.
Hers a link to all of them.
"SwitchMe is a unique application for root users that allows you to log in and out of multiple installations of Android just as you would on a desktop computer, with each profile having its own separate system settings, apps and data."
For example you can create a guest account that only has the dialer installed. If someone wants to borrow your phone to make a phone call, just switch to this account, so they cannot see your private pictures, video's or other apps.
Or if you have children you can create an account with only the games installed.
If you have a smartphone, and get Craigslist Notifier. There's a free version, which is nice. You type in keywords/prices/locations, and it notifies you when matching ads get posted. Useful for furniture and such.
Check out goodwill, they often have lots of cookware and things.
The story doesn't really add up. If you look at the stats on the play store the light version was never taken down even though it looks like the paid version was. I don's feel like we're getting the full story here.
Gameboid + Sixaxis controller + tv adapter = epic gaming experience
I've yet to use to app, but from what I've gathered, it's like Pixlr-o-matic, except with less filters and options, and it alows you to post to its own twitter-like and other social networks from within the app, instead of the apparently much harder entering Facebook and uploading an editted picture.
Unified Remote. Use the "Basic Input" remote for mouse and hit your menu key for a keyboard. The ad-free version is $4 if you want that.
Personaly, I prefer ES.
That would be nice. My problem is that I just don't like the Google Books app. Aldiko is the best ebook reader imo.
Developer Notes: I'm an ex-console games programmer who wanted to do something about the lack of serious music apps on Android.
My droid scanned it just fine... (Barcode Scanner app)
As always, I personally suggest Cerberus. Ever feature you could possibly want. All the tracking goodness, GPS history, call/sms logs, remote photo/video, remote wiping (phone and/or sdcard), even takes a picture upon failed security code input. If you're rooted, you can also install it as a system level app, so it survives a system restore. Also, the devs are very cool, and are easy to work with/talk to.
Most google products are not marketed as stupid-proof
As for driving, I can see them disabling certain features when the GPS detects you doing 5+ MPH. Although personally I think these can be used to improve driving with proximity detection, traffic / sign light alerts etc (there is an app that does this already https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.picitup.iOnRoad). That's why AR tech is so cool, it can enhance everything you do
Scraped them all, and uploaded here if you wish to use them with animgif2 as live wallpapers. I really hope the author does not mind, for personal use and all. Or should I remove the download?
if you're on android, I've used it for a couple years, works awesome.
Pretty annoying that you can't just dim the screen in the brightness settings, especially when the screen is the main battery hog on most devices. Plus I love not blinding everyone in a room during a movie or something.
Actually just found out that Pulse is ideal for tablets on flights as well. It syncs all the articles so that they can all viewed after you lost connection. It actually has a poor implementation of reddit but tech blogs, sports, and other topics make for an awesome app.
You should check out LazyDroid. It is a web desktop like AirDroid but much more robust. The messaging window it gives you is great and looks really nice. It will even display your contact pictures in the message thread.
Reasons I use it over AirDroid: Remote Control Phone, Chrome SMS notifications, Root File Explorer, run Terminal commands, and I can access it via wireless or USB.
My favorite part: LazyDroid will give you notifications in Chrome, so you can reply to messages while in other tabs.
The trending apps section is always full of trash and copyright/trademark infringements. For example, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in your screenshot doesn't look very legitimate.
Thanks to Android Police: Article

Shush! If you put your phone into vibrate/silent mode, a little dialogue pops up asking how long you want to silence it. After the time is up, it brings it back up to the volume at which you had it.
One stop shop: Ninite I use or have used just about everything on there except Safari, Opera, the messaging apps, iTunes and Quicktime. It downloads and installs all the apps without the toolbars and other bloat that sometimes comes with free software.
Also, If you havent taken advantage of the Google unwalled garden, you can go here, login, and click on 'Upload Music' to get the desktop app that will allow you to upload 20,000 mp3s to google and stream them on the web or to your Galaxy S with this.
Thanks for the Reddit Sync mention.
I've just added search to the app, hoping to get an update out over the next few days which will also add messaging :)
I absolutely love Unified Remote.
It comes in uber handy for those times when you're laid back, can't be fucked to reach forward for your mouse/keyboard , but just happen to have your phone in your pocket.
I have an android tablet myself, and a pc permanently hooked up to my main tv in the living room. No need for an extra mouse/keyboard laying around downstairs.
Football Manager Handheld is $10. It's about soccer and spreadsheets.
Most of the top selling Android games are between $1-$2. Established franchises from major publishers are $3-$5 (Sonic 4, Super Monkey Ball, Madden, GTAIII, NBA Jam).
This game is $10. I can just picture the lifelike player models, beautiful textures, and unbelievably good lighting. Xbox 360-like graphics, and amazing gameplay, right? Wrong. Look at the screenshots of this $10 game.
So yes, pricing yourself WAY out of the market, (This game looks to be worth about a dollar) and choosing a topic a major Android market has no interest in (Americans don't like soccer) will greatly increase your piracy rate.
Is developer entitlement a thing? I'm going to call it a thing now. Dear developer: Your product isn't worth the price you are charging for it. Stop blaming everyone else for your poor decisions.
My friend made an app named "Grade Possibilities" for college students. It tells you the lowest grade you need on every remaining assignment in your classes to maintain a certain grade, not just on the last test. I thought it was pretty cool and it is a bit addicting for nerds like me 8)
He just released it https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=keptafterclass.grade.possibilities I think the store links to its FB page too.
MIUI has LBE Privacy Guard built into it, No big deal.Now if you want to see a better built in feature then double tap the time on the MIUI lock screen and up comes the music player or hold down your home button (at lock screen) if you have one and your LED turns on as a torch.
More tips here
Why not just use LBE Privacy Guard? Doesn't matter what permissions your apps want. You decide what permissions they actually get.
Sadly not. Google does almost nothing (less than nothing) to restrict / prevent evil devs and their apps. Look at the full permissions on https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=wx72.WeatherGirl - amongst others, this application REQUIRES the ability to shut other apps down.
If something smells fishy, it's probably a fish.
Dungeon Raid is a match-3 game with heavy RPG elements; lots of levelling up and getting equipment and improving skills. It's very addictive.
I haven't used Camera 360 for a while now, but the reason I switched to another app was due to the fact that it would continue using the battery after it was closed.
I switched to Camera Zoom FX and couldn't be happier.
Yeah, its kind of a wall of 1 star reviews in there :\
Google Books (now Google Play Books https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.books) are taking a hammering too, though thats mainly for the name change and the "forced" installation.
I am hesitant to do this because it wouldn't protect me from someone snatching my phone within 15 minutes of me using it and having access.
Currently looking at the Unlock with Wifi app so I can avoid entering in my code when at home or work, which is when I am most annoyed at having to do so (unless I can find a free way to do the same thing)
A short video I just made of a 'squeeze to lock screen' animation on Android.
What you will need:
An android device running Ice Cream Sandwich
Screen Off and Lock
I'm running MIUI ICS which has the CRT monitor animation built in, if you are running a version of ICS which does not have it, you can add it via screen off and lock's settings.
Go to Apex settings - behaviour settings - pinch in gesture and set it to launch app, then select screen off and lock.
Quickpic Works well, I have been using it for a while. It auto rotates to fit screen, auto brightness up when looking at a pic. It works fast and much better than gallery.
This one is good, but Cerberus trumps it in about every way possible. Cerberus can even work if the phone gets the data wiped.
I'll 2nd the Llama. It turns wifi off, bluetooth and mobile data on when I leave the house. Get to work and it's bluetooth off, wifi on. In the late evening it turns everything off.
Uses cell towers rather than GPS (unless you want to use GPS), so doesn't use loads of battery. Very nice app.
Kairosoft makes the best phone games!
This is Epic Astro Story Google Play and iTunes
I'm a man of my word. Took me an hour :)
It's really really really simple (Think, one screen, a map, 8 lines of text in total and an update button), but it's done.
Putting it on the market now, will update with a link in a minute.
Edit: And it's up. I doubt it will show up on your phone yet, but you can use this direct link to download it regardless: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sirpali.timezones
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any suggestions for the future :)
Recently got turned onto LBE Privacy Guard It lets you modify\revoke permissions from apps you don't want to have them, as well as monitor what is using how much bandwidth.
> I can't even find a handful of games on the android market that are of the pixel style.
What??? Kairosoft is one of the most beloved developers for iOS/Android, and they exclusively use pixel art.
Pixel art has its place in the industry, and it isn't going anywhere. It has its limitations, but so does every style of game art.
Could this be the reason why some apps are on sale?
If you really can't keep your phone on, then use lightflow to set custom vibrations for your notifications. You can make your phone vibrate for as long as you want (10 seconds for example), and then have it repeat for as much as you want.
It will increase the chance that you'll feel your phone vibrating.
Depending on the model of you phone, it might require root access.
> QuickPic a lightweight gallery app. Fluid and functional.
and after seeing other comments I need to support this app too:
> ES File Explorer
Appart from being a terrific file explorer, with a clean interface, it allows you to mount volumes over sftp/ftp/webdav, as well as dropbox/sugarsync/box
Airpush (probably) at its finest.
Also, if anybody remembers iris (the siri clone/parody) which was born here was recently updated to include Airpush ads. I uninstalled that app faster than you can say Sasquatch.
Airpush is a disease to Android, and we must have zero tolerance for its use.
Edit: This app should tell you whats doing what.
I use the app Webkey (root required) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.webkey to remotely control my girlfriend's or mom's phone.
Mostly my mom's phone. Mom has not used a computer in all her life nor owned a smart phone since now, her version of pulling down the notification bar involves all five fingers, anyhow say she needs direction to a place I just ask her to tap the Webkey widget on the home screen & then using my own phone or a pc, I can take over her phone and find the place and have the phone start GPS navigation.
Also at times I push coupons to restaurants etc using Chrome2phone to show up on her phone so the cashier can scan it. Absolutely must have apps! She wanted the iPhone, veto!
Girlfriends phone is connected too in case she needs help setting up an app pronto =]
I guess if you haven't already installed some tracking apps, your best bet would be Lookout Plan B.
Hopefully Lookout will update AdDetector soon. It's worth noting though that NBC, Walmart, etc are advertisers, not necessarily the entities whose apps use SellARing
>I really think they just don't understand what this is all about and it bugs me that a project like this is subject to apple's whims.
Behold your Apple free future, good sir..
I have two paid apps on the market and I make ~125$/day so ~4000$ per month.
Caustic and LoopStack
Most of the money comes from Caustic. Both are free demos with unlock key apps. No advertising apart from word of mouth and the usual helpful websites like AndroidPolice who have included both in their round ups when they were released.
I'm fine with sharing my numbers as I hate the taboo of talking about money. But I would like to offer the following caveat. This is not a easy money story. I'm not some brilliant/lucky guy who wrote a small app that does one simple thing well and then sat back.
Caustic has been out for about a year and is growing into something pretty big in terms of software projects, and huge in term of mobile "apps". I also work on my apps EVERY single free hour I have, and with that in mind, I make ~20$/h, which is way less than I used to make when working a "real" software job ... but this is more fun :-)
Smart Statusbar, It was posted here a long time back, It clearly didn't get enough attention - Link
You can access the Status Bar when you're in full screen.
Use this to make any.gif a wallpaper
What mobile version are you using? Reddit is Fun allows you to delete comments.
If you give reddit is fun a try, I'd love any feedback you have compared to Reddita. reddit is fun has full tablet (dual-pane) support, and I've been updating it (too) frequently.
Connect Bot (used with Hacker's Keyboard for easier input)
It is the best SSH client out there!
If you have an Android phone, download this app for realtime bus arrivals. It's maybe 3 minutes early on the bus arrival times, but otherwise works very well for me.
Do you know what area you're thinking of moving to? I lived in the Brookline/Allston/Brighton area for 5 years... it was great during college, but commuting to work on the green line is a bitch. I'm glad I moved to the other side of the river (Cambridge).
My favorite bars are:
The Lower Depths (Kenmore Square). A ridiculous amount of different types of beers to choose from, and very delicious food. They do a ton of beer socials with both local & non local breweries; if you "Like" them on facebook you'll be in the loop.
The Silhouette (Allston). Complete dive with darts & popcorn.
Clerys (South End/Back Bay). I only like this place because they open up the downstairs for dancing on Friday & Saturday nights. No cover, and you're not in a gross club downtown with clearly underage ladies and eurotrash.
People's Republik (Central Square, Cambridge). Kinda divey, good beers and lots of darts (yes, I like darts a lot!).
Wally's (South End). Jazz club, and lots of interesting people watching. It's REALLY cramped, but I've always had a good time there.
There's many more great bars, but these should help you get started. Hope this helps and good luck with your move!
You should include a link to your app. Lapse It - Free Version, and Lapse it - Full Version $1.99
ChargeBar is similar. http://i.imgur.com/N9fc4.jpg
TEAM Battery Bar (white-bar) only has an option to be on top of the notification bar and bottom of the screen, I believe this is true on the pro-version as well. Chargebar (light blue) has an option to place below the notification bar, as well as above it and on the bottom of the screen.
So a bit of explanation: the game's called Photon (turns out to be un-Googleable), it was featured on Google Play over the weekend and has gone a bit nuts which is great, but now we're getting hit with a bajillion complaints, either to do with buggy behaviour on various Android devices or the colourblind issue.
Denis is new to the team, and he said he was colourblind, but... you know. Nobody believed him.
I grabbed this video of Denis playing Photon while we were having lunch. If you watch him playing, you can see just how profoundly helpless he is, like a turtle that's been asked to do a tax return.
Moral of the story: maybe invest some time in accessibility features before your game starts to take off.
*Edit: The headline should have said users are "bummed" more than "pissed". (As in, the colourblind users are bummed; the users with device crash issues are pissed.)
Developer Notes: I've been developing for Android since 2009, when the G1 was the only Android device out there. Besides developing apps, I'm interested in kernel hacking. Follow me on Twitter!
>1/5 stars: Jordan on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 14:26 HTC EVO Shift 4G (speedy)
APP DOES NOT GENERATE STRONG CODES! A secure password should be at least eight characters, and contain numbers, symbols, upper- & lower- case letters
WHOOSH, Jordan. Someone missed the point....
There's an Android application for that. Pretty handy if you keep your phone at your desk while you play.
Simple and straight forward. I use it daily to leave myself reminders, check lists or grocery lists.
You mean like the Photoshop Android app costs $700 just like the Windows version does, right?
Save yourself the lastpass subscription fee and use KeepassDroid instead. It's an android client for the fantastic and open-source KeePass password manager. For double goodness you can backup your keepass manager file to dropbox or google drive and have it always synced everywhere.
Wallpaper Wizardrii is the solution to your problem. I had the same issue and someone mentioned it. It's made my touchpad not look like complete trash now.
Oh, the original game is "Overkill", it's available for iOS and Android and it's free to play and it has MULTIPLAYER
(If you're patient you can finish whole game without spending a buck, but tell no one)
E: If you decide to give it a try, we got PROMO code for some free currency.
The code is "Craneballs", yeah have fun
Hey, you should try out Speedx 3D. It uses tilt but rather than having a default orientation so the player has to go into options and setup how they have their device orientated, it does like an orientation check at the start of a level when it counts down to start. For anyone who downloads your game your game is pretty much unplayable unless they either A. Figure out by default game is setup for a flat orientation or B. Head into the settings.
LLama, doesn't need gps, uses cell towers. Turn off data, turn on wifi and vice versa when entering/leaving a location.
pressurenet will track and upload your readings, and view a map with everyone else's readings. It's not a very good visualization of the stored data though, but it's got potential.
Gee Engadget, would it kill you to put the link in your article?
I'm sorry to say this mate, but I took a look at the page of your app in the Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.seantron.Hamsteria) and it just doesn't look all that apealing. It's probably a fun game, but unless it gets a lot of media attention that Play Store page IS NOT going to sell your app. Don't blame it on piracy or incompatability, if a game looks good and gets attention, people WILL buy it.
I like Smart Rotator a lot. You just tell it which apps you want auto rotate turned on for, and which you don't, or you can force landscape or portrait on an app by app basis.
It's a cool screen timeout app. It lets you set custom angles to turn the screen off/keep screen on at. Useful if your tired of your phone dimming when your reading it.
Tasker does all this and more, albeit without the minimalist web interface. Tasker is far more powerful, and even further capable on rooted phones.
A brief summary of Tasker's features: http://tasker.dinglisch.net/tour.html
Security enhancement plugin for rooted users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intangibleobject.securesettings.plugin&hl=en
I'm unaffiliated with the Tasker developer. Just a satisfied user. That said, a more user-friendly web-based interface that syncs to my devices would be more than welcome!
Edit: Tasker is already a platform which supports third party plugins, such as Locale. A search through the play market reveals many third party plugins.
Notes from barcodes
Notes from Google Docs
I primarily use Firefox on the PC but I use Chrome on Android, it's the fastest browser available at the moment. ~~but I mainly use it for~~ Chrome to Phone allows you to send any link directly from your PC to your phone with one click.
Also, I recommend Reddit News instead of Baconreader, which matches Alien Blue for iOS apparently. It's personal preference though so have a look at all your options!
Everybody needs to use the amazing free and ad-free Airdroid. It lets you wirelessly manage your Android from your favorite browser. Not only files (attention Mac-users) but also apps, agenda, contacts, texts etc. Try it out.
ES File Explorer
The setting is Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Unknown Sources.
I think Tasks (to do app with Google tasks sync) looks good, comes with both a dark and a light theme:
There is a free version with ads available called Tasks Free.
Galaxy Nexus with their monthly 4G plan. Even though the phone might be a bit outdated compared to HTC One S or GSIII, It will be really nice to be one of the first with the new version of android this fall. The 100 minute plan for $30 is a great deal if you don't talk on the phone that much, or are tech savvy enough to enable SIP internet calling, which will give you basically unlimited minutes on wifi at the cost of some battery life.
I like Ceberus, in fact, I think it's the best security app available. But can anyone suggest the best free alternative (even if it has less features)?

Why are people down voting this?
* 1. get one ofthese. This is what you'll need to connect your Android device to your LCD tv via HDMI.
* 2. If you have a PS3 remote laying around, you can download an app from Google Play called Sixaxis Controller. The only catch is that you need to 'root' your device, which basically grants application Super User access that is normally locked. Kind of like jailbreaking an iphone. You can find guides on how to do this online.
* 2.5 if you do not have a ps3 remote, you can use any Bluetooth controller.
* 3. Download emulators for your system. I use MD.emu for Genesis, N63oid for N64, Snes9x EX for Super Nintendo, GAMEboid for GBA, and FPse for Playstation.
* 4. Once you've got all your pieces in place, you simply need to reconfigure your button input in each emulator. Cool bonus fact: you can use your ps3 remote as a mouse as well, controlling a tiny mouse across the screen.
Yes you can but it depends on which phone or tablet you have.
